Brad Pendergrass, Tennessee’s head of football operations, has stepped down – only two days before National Signing Day.

In a release, Pendergrass said: “It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to resign from my position on the football staff here at Tennessee…I am very appreciative of the experiences this great university has afforded me, and I look forward to watching the successes that lie ahead on many fronts. I would like to thank [Tennessee AD] Dave Hart, Butch Jones, and many others for their support and advice in this decision, and I look forward to new opportunities for professional and personal growth.

Pendergrass was a UT grad before working at Tennessee for 10 seasons, leaving for the director of football operations role at Mississippi State in 2007. He then went to Wisconsin for one season before returning to Tennessee.

In his latest stint at Tennessee, the football team has been awful, going to just one bowl game in the four years he was there. They were 0-1 in that bowl game (Derek Dooley’s first season as coach).
